“I ​​thoroughly enjoyed working on this campaign,” said Stone. “It turned out to be my first experience in a sport as demanding as football and at its highest level of performance, the World Cup.

“Working with DIRECTV was very helpful and together we managed to get my two roles, as an actor and director artistically supported throughout the process.”

DIRECTV’s partnership with Stone is in keeping with its mandate to provide viewers with an unrivalled experience of the FIFA World Cup, which goes beyond broadcasting the competition and aims to make viewers feel that they are physically inside the Brazilian stadia.

DIRECTV will also have unmatched coverage of all 64 matches available live in 3D and HD, a channel that provides 24 hour World Cup coverage, a choice of commentators and languages and a unique, interactive multi-camera system that allows subscribers to view different games on a single screen at different angles.
